Lazy Day Foods Free From Millionaire’s Shortbread

Ingredients – flour (rice, tapioca, corn, soya), dairy-free margarine (palm oil, rape seed oil, water, salt, emulsifier (mono- & diglycerides), natural vegetable colours (curcumin, annatto), natural flavouring), sugar, chocolate (cocoa solids, cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, soya lecithin, natural vanilla), golden syrup, palm oil, emulsifier (soya lecithin).

I am having a very rock and roll Sunday evening (see photo) and these have been a very pleasant accompaniment. If I am going to be picky then the biscuit base is too crumbly. These shortbread are not good for surreptitious snacking as you will leave tell-tale crumbs. Also, I thought there was too much biscuit base and too little caramel. Despite these gripes, I would still buy these again.

Lazy Day Foods Free From Tiffin

48ab3ea3-3f15-476c-87ce-bd6d9d05764dIngredients- chocolate (cocoa solids, cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, soya lecithin, natural vanilla), flour (rice, tapioca, corn), dairy-free margarine (palm oil, rape seed oil, water, salt, emulsifier (mono- & diglycerides), natural vegetable colours (curcumin, annatto), natural flavouring), sugar, sultanas, golden syrup, soya lecithin.

I haven’t got a photo of this (so I had to use a stock photo from the company website) because my husband ate the whole packet for brunch before I had the chance to take a picture which I think says all you need to know about how yummy this is.

Pulsin’ Mint Choc Chip Protein Bite

Ingredients – cashews, brown rice malt, rice protein, pea protein, chocolate chips (cocoa mass, xylitol, cocoa butter, sunflower lecithin), xylitol, chicory fibre, cacao butter, concentrated fruit juice (apple, grape, pear), raw cacao, rice starch, green tea extract, peppermint oil, sea salt.

This is very minty, overwhelmingly minty, so it really depends how you feel about that flavour. I like mint, but not at the cost of being able to taste the chocolate that might as well not be there. Also, I found the texture a bit gritty.

Angelic Orange Chocolate Cookies

Ingredients – gluten free flour (rice, potato, tapioca, maize, buckwheat), sugar, margarine (vegetable fats: palm, vegetable oil: rapeseed, water, salt), golden syrup, chocolate pieces (cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, emulsifier: sunflower lecithin), emulsifier (sunflower lecithin), raising agents (mono calcium phosphate, sodium bicarbonate), tapioca starch, stabiliser (xanthan gum), natural flavouring, salt.

It’s a rainy Bank holiday here in the UK so it seemed the perfect opportunity for a cup of tea and a biscuit. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the perfect biscuit. The first one was nice and I even liked the texture, which was different from a gluteny biscuit, but better than most gluten free products. Unfortunately, the second biscuit in the packet had crossed the line from caramelised to burnt.

Chika’s Smoked Almonds

SKA-SMALL-WEBSITE-45-140g-e1440701188994Ingredients – almonds, rapeseed oil, seasoning (salt, dextrose, rice flour, yeast powder, yeast extract powder, smoked paprika, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, smoke flavouring, citric acid, natural flavouring).

Happiness is the Allergy Brothers snoring after a fun day, chilled white wine and a delicious snack. These smoked almonds are hitting the spot. Very savoury; these are a grown up snack. As a plus, I love the packaging.

allergic-to-ignorance:

Have you heard of eosinophilic esophagitis, also known as EoE? There are different types of allergic reactions to food. EoE is a delayed food allergy that inflames the esophagus. With EoE, swallowing food can be hard and painful. More info: http://community.kidswithfoodallergies.org/blog/eosinophilic-esophagitis-eoe-food-allergy-awareness

Eat Real Hummus Chips Chilli and Lemon Flavour

Ingredients- chickpea flour, rice, potato starch, rapeseed oil, salt, chilli and lemon seasoning (salt, rice flour, spices including chilli, yeast extract powder, garlic powder, onion powder, citric acid, natural flavourings, lemon juice powder (maltodextrin from IP maize, lemon juice), paprika).

These were a treat just for me (the Allergy Brothers are allergic to quite a few of the ingredients so it would have been cruel to share). I wanted a big hit of flavour and boy did these deliver. These would be great with some gluten-free beer and some televised sport. Perfect bar snack.

The Foodie Market (Aldi) Multigrain Rice Cake Snack Bars

Ingredients – rice, maize, millet, buckwheat, sea salt.

I think these are the perfect rice cake. The combination of grains makes for a good flavour that is less bland than 100% rice cakes, but without the challenging texture of 100% corn cakes. They also have a good texture for dipping as they don’t collapse.

These would also be very convenient for a packed lunch as you get four packs of three crackers. They would be perfect paired with those mini tubs of houmous (or a big tub if you are greedy like me).

In summary, these rice cakes will be joining our regular shopping basket. Yum.

Bakery on Main Maple Multigrain Muffin Flavored Instant Oatmeal

Ingredients – gluten free oats, evaporated cane juice, chia seeds, flax meal, quinoa, amaranth, flavourings, sea salt.

These were pretty expensive so I had high hopes, which were sadly not met. I think these would be great if you were travelling and needed to be able to have a gf/cf/vegan breakfast with you. If you are at home, then it would be much better value to just buy regular gluten free oatmeal and add your own extras. Overall, the flavour was fine, although I did find the quinoa was quite prominent in the mix.
